Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) Cases


In Housing Court, a tenant has the ability to commence a case against a landlord for repairs in an apartment. The HP Part of the Housing Court has jurisdiction to hear these tenant-initiated cases. In addition, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development can commence cases for building-wide violations, failure to provide heat/hot water, and certification issues for failure to remove violations. A 7A proceeding can involve the tenants in a building attempting to remove a landlord from managing its building.

The firm of Cohen Hurkin appears in the HP Part on a regular basis and has years of experience handling these cases, negotiating with New York City attorneys from HPD. Our attorneys have a deep understanding of the Housing Maintenance Code that governs these cases.
